Scientists balk at ‘hottest year’ claims: Ignores Satellites showing 18 Year ‘Pause’ – ‘We are arguing over the significance of hundredths of a degree’ – The ‘Pause’ continues

The global warming establishment and the media are crowing about 2010 being in a tie for the “hottest year” ever. The UK Guardian headline sums up the media’s promotion:

UK Guardian: ‘Hottest Year’ Claim: 2014 officially the ‘hottest year’ on record US government scientists say – ‘Nasa and Noaa scientists report 2014 was 0.07F (0.04C) higher than previous records…The global average temperatures over land and sea surface for the year was 1.24F (0.69C) above the 20th century average, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa) and Nasa reported. The scientists said 2014 was 0.07F (0.04C) higher than the previous records set in 2005 and 2010.’

But scientists and climate skeptics are countering that the claims of “hottest year” are based on immeasurable temperature differences that are based on hundredths of a degree differences.

Climate Depot’s Marc Morano issued this statement: “There are dueling global datasets — surface temperature records and satellite records — and they disagree. The satellites show an 18 year plus global warming ‘standstill and the satellite was set up to be “more accurate” than the surface records. See: Flashback: 1990 NASA Report: ‘Satellite analysis of upper atmosphere is more accurate, & should be adopted as the standard way to monitor temp change.’

Any temperature claim of “hottest  year” based on surface data is based on hundredths of a degree hotter than previous “hottest years”. This immeasurable difference is not even within the margin of error of temperature gauges. The claim of the “hottest year” is simply a political statement not based on temperature facts. “Hottest year” claims are based on minute fractions of a degree while ignoring satellite data showing Earth is continuing the 18 plus year ‘pause’ or ‘standstill’. See: The Great Pause lengthens again: Global temperature update: The Pause is now 18 years 3 months (219 months)

Monckton jan 2014

Claiming 2014 is the “hottest year” on record based on hundredths of a degree temperature difference is a fancy way of saying the global warming ‘pause’ is continuing.”

End Morano statement. (Morano was former staff of U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee and producer of upcoming documentary Climate Hustle. He also testified in West VA on the climate school curriculum. )

Even former NASA global warming chief scientist  James Hansen, the leading proponent of man-made global warming in the U.S., conceded in 2011 that the “hottest year” rankings are essentially meaningless. Hansen explained that 2010 differed from 2005 by less than 2 hundredths of a degree F (that’s 0.018F). “It’s not particularly important whether 2010, 2005, or 1998 was the hottest year on record,” Hansen admitted on January 13.

Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry, former chair of the school of earth and atmospheric sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology, had this to say about 2014 being the ‘hottest year’: “The ‘warmest year’ is noticeably missing in the satellite data sets of lower atmospheric temperatures,” Curry wrote on January 16.

Curry predicts another decade of a global warming ‘pause’ or ‘hiatus’. “I’ve made my projection – global surface temperatures will remain mostly flat for at least another decade,” she eexplained 

“With 2014 essentially tied with 2005 and 2010 for hottest year, this implies that there has been essentially no trend in warming over the past decade. This ‘almost’ record year does not help the growing discrepancy between the climate model projections and the surface temperature observations,” Curry told the Washington Post.

Curry continued: “Berkeley Earth (temperature analysis) sums it up well with this statement: ‘That is, of course, an indication that the Earth’s average temperature for the last decade has changed very little.’

Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels, mocked the notion of the “hottest year.”   “Whether or not a given year is a hundredth of a degree or so above a previous record is not the issue. What IS the issue is how observed temperatures compare to what has been forecast to happen,” Michaels said.

Michaels continued: “John Christy and Richard McNider, from University of Alabama (Huntsville) recently compared climate model projections to observed lower atmospheric temperatures as measured by two independent sources: satellites and weather balloons. They found that the average warming predicted to have occurred since 1979 (when the satellite data starts) is approximately three times larger than what is being observed.”

Climatologist Dr. John Christy, professor of atmospheric sciences, University of Alabama-Huntsville, noted satellites do not agree with “warmest year” claims. “The satellite and balloon data of the deep atmosphere have 2014 in a cluster of warmish years well below the hottest two of 1998 and 2010″, Christy said.

Christy continued: “With the government agencies reporting that the surface temperature as highest ever, we have a puzzle. The puzzle is even more puzzling because theory (i.e. models) indicate the opposite should be occurring – greater warmth in the deep atmosphere than the surface. So, there are just many very basic and fundamental aspects of the global climate we have yet to comprehend.”

Climatologist Dr. Roger Pielke Sr., professor of atmospheric science, Colorado State University, downplayed the accuracy of the surface temperature record. “There remain significant uncertainties in the accuracy of the land portion of the surface temperature data, where we have found a significant warm bias. Thus, the reported global average surface temperature anomaly is also too warm.”

“More generally, we need to move beyond just assessing global warming, but examine how (and if) key atmospheric and ocean circulations, such as El Nino, La Nina, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, etc. are changing in their intensity, structure and frequency. These are the climate features that determine if a region has drought, floods, and so forth, not a global average surface temperature anomaly,” Pielke added.

Astrophysicist Dr. Dr David Whitehouse declared “talk of a record is scientifically and statistically meaningless.’ “The addition of 2014 global temperature data confirms that the post-1997 standstill seen in global annual average surface temperature has continued,” Whitehouse wrote on January 16.

“According to the Nasa global temperature database 2014 was technically a record ‘beating’ 2010 by the small margin of 0.02 deg C. The NASA press release is highly misleading saying that 2014 is a record without giving the actual 2014 figure, or any other year, or its associated error.”

“In reality of course it is no record at all as the error of the measurements is about +/- 0.1 deg C showing NasaGiss’ statement to go against the normal treatment of observational data and its errors. Talk of a record is therefore scientifically and statistically meaningless,” Whitehouse added.

“It is clear beyond doubt by now that there is a growing discrepancy between computer climate projections and real-world data that questions their ability to produce meaningful projections about future climatic conditions,” Whitehouse concluded.

Another analysis noted: NASA Hottest Year Claims Not Supported By The Data: NASA admitted in 2011 that “hottest year” differences were “smaller than the uncertainty in comparing the temperatures of recent years.”

Via the website ‘Not A Lot Of People Know That: “Nowhere does their (NASA 2015) press release tell us that it only beat the previous record by a tiny, effectively unmeasurable 0.02C. Nor do they mention that the error bars are many times greater, or even tell us what they are. This is all very strange because in their (NASA) report on 2010 Global Temperatures, NASA said:

“Global surface temperatures in 2010 tied 2005 as the warmest on record, according to an analysis released Wednesday by researchers at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York. The two years differed by less than 0.018 degrees Fahrenheit. The difference is smaller than the uncertainty in comparing the temperatures of recent years, putting them into a statistical tie.”

Meteorologist Dr. Ryan Maue of Florida State University ridiculed the same “hottest year” rankings in 2010 and NASA’s Hansen’s admission that it “was not particularly important” which year was declared the “hottest.” “Well, then stop issuing press releases which tout the rankings, which are subject to change ex post facto,” Maue demanded in a January 14, 2011 commentary at WattsUpWithThat.com.

Other prominent scientists have said that temperature rise since 1850 has been very small.

See: Top Swedish Climate Scientist Says Warming Not Noticeable: ‘The warming we have had last a 100 years is so small that if we didn’t have climatologists to measure it we wouldn’t have noticed it at all’ – Award-Winning Dr. Lennart Bengtsson, formerly of UN IPCC: ‘We Are Creating Great Anxiety Without It Being Justified’. Dr. Bengtsson announced his skeptical climate views in 2014.

Nobel Prize-Winning Physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever, declared his dissent on global warming and noted that the temperature rise over the 20th century was “so little. It is not even fever.”  Giaever won a Nobel Prize for physics.

“.8 degrees we will be discussing in global warming. .8 degrees if you ask people in general they will think it is 4 or 5 degrees they don’t know it is so little. It is not even fever,” Giaever said.

“I am amazed that the temperature can be so stable,” Giaever explained. ‘The temperature (of the Earth) has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this ‘warming’ period.’

“I don’t see that co2 is the cause of all this problem,” he added.

No Record Temperatures According To Satellites – BBC put up a deliberately apocalyptic picture while telling us the world is on course for the warmest year on record. What they failed to tell us was that the more accurate satellites, which monitor atmospheric temperatures over nearly all of the globe, say no such thing.  Figures from UAH are out for November, and these show a drop from the  October anomaly of 0.27C to 0.33C. This means that at the end of November, this year is only in a tie for 3rd with 2005, and well below the record year of 1998, and 2010.

This difference is so great that it statistically clear that 2014 will not be a record year…The super El Niño of 1998 set a high temperature mark that will likely stand for many years to come, or at least until another huge El Niño occurs.’ – ‘If you want 2014 to be the “warmest year ever recorded” you can find data to back you up, and if you prefer it not be, well, you can find data to back up that position as well. In all cases, the former will make headlines.’

    We know NASA is a division of the U.S. government.

          • Vette66

            I do agree on a lot of foreign students getting grants. When my wife was in college getting her BS and Masters, most of the foreign students were going on grants. They also told her that could use the money for living expenses. I see that as paying themselves a salary to live. Since you receive a grans to do research, you must have been working for someone else and they were paying you or did you work for free?

            Yes, as a graduate student you are paid for 20 hours of research work each week, which is enough to pay for many of your living expenses.

            Two years ago I was an (adult) electrical engineering graduate student. A U.S. government entity was paying the grant obtained by my professor and it employed myself and another foreign student. When you work doing research for the university, your tuition is also paid (essentially free).

          • Vette66

            The foreign students that were class with my wife and working on their first four years of an electronic engineering degree were getting grants. Of course she didn’t get any because she is an American and married to one of those filthy, filthy rich white guys. Have a great day and hope you can find a job.

          • Dave Girvin

            Oh, I’m a brainwashed repub who thinks the scientists just deposit those grants in their personal accounts, like the pay checks “scientists” working for the polluters do.

          • Vette66

            I didn’t have any opinion of where your politics lead. But afer that reply trying to put words in my mouth, I would now think you to be more on the Progressive/Democrat side of politics.

          • Dave Girvin

            That’s exactly my point idiot, they use them to fund more research, their not a paycheck. And I’ve been out of highschool longer than you’ve been alive fool.

          • Vette66

            They are still using the grant money to live off of, therefore, a paycheck. You can call it what ever you want. I do hope I do live as long as you since you must be in your middle to late 80s since I was born in the late ’40s. Or were you just being sarcastic about my age since I don’t agree with what you think?
            Have a great evening, going to bed now and read a book.

          • Dave Girvin

            Should they do it for free? If you we’re born in the forties

          • Vette66

            So are you now agreeing that the grant money they are using to live off of is used as part of a paycheck? No, it doesn’t matter when you were born, it is money to do what ever the money was give to you for. Go to school, research work, living expenses, etc.
            So your not near as old as you were trying to make me believe.

          • Dave Girvin

            I wasn’t being sarcastic or insulting about your age but you obviously were and just like most conservatives you start it, “when you get out of highschool” then you start crying when it comes back your way. Your comment was juvenile so I thought you were, just so you know I was born the year Kennedy was inaugurated. If those scientists were concerned about a big paycheck they’d work for the oil companies.

          • Vette66

            Sarcasm was never intended since I know nothing about you, your reply sounded like a high school reply to me. The people doing research for the oil companies are being paid by the oil companies as employees not with grant money. Grants can be used to go to school, research, pay living expenses while in school or doing research.
            I was in grade school when Kennedy was inaugurated.
            It doesn’t look like we will agree on anything except about how old we are.
            Have a great day.
            Time to go get a cup of coffee.

          • Skeptical

            Ah Dave…you poor man. The ‘scientists’ who spend our grant (tax) money pretend to study all that is related to AGW and provide no solutions. Just say “AGW” on your grant application and the gubment leaps at the chance to waste more money making feel good studies that have no merit. At least those big bad oil companies…who by the way make less on a barrel of oil than the government does….provide us with the ability to survive as an economic power. GRANTS ARE SCIENTISTS PAYCHECKS!!!! Wake up you warped university instructed retard!

          • Dave Girvin

            When the bell rings why don’t you run across the play ground and check out all the solutions that scientists have come up with, there’s quite a few, you’d know that if your head wasn’t buried in the sand, you know the oil saturated sand covering the Gulf of Mexico that tax payers will eventually have to pay to clean up.

          • Dave Girvin

            Pretend to study? Pretend to have a brain… They’ve came up with lots of solutions, you might not like them, they might cramp your self destructive life style of consumption. Grants are overseen, they pay for research, equipment, assistants, and scientists, of course they don’t do it for free, but they’re not getting rich from grants, like the “scientists” working for the oil companies, they keep all of their checks and come up with bogus simple minded non-facts. Maybe you should have gotten a grant for college, you would know how to spell government and wouldn’t be such a mental drain on society.

        • mickrussom

          So you’re ok with him being a hypocrite then, either way.

      • janger

        Oh that’s rich! Well played GiveMeLiberty!…well played! 😉

      • Realist

        I’m confused on how electric/hybrid can significantly reduce emmissions. You have to plug the thing in right? The power to charge the batteries comes from somewhere, right? Most likely the power used to charge the batteries was generated with gas or coal.

        • GiveMeLiberty

          First Rule: IGNORE facts and logic…just obey the government with a smile, and vote Democrat!

          • Joan Lussier

            I lived in California when Carter was President. Where is that global
            cooling Mr. Carter ??

          • Auntie Socialist

            The fact that the report was made and presented by “Federal Scientists” is all I need to know.

          • FarOutlier

            Lie through their teeth. Not an ounce of integrity in the Obama camp.

          • Dave Girvin

            Oh, so Obama came up with climate change? Or did this just become a partisan issue when the black guy walked in the door?

          • Skeptical

            it’s been an issue since the dumb shit leftists called it Global cooling, Global warming, Climate Change…on and on….just so they could sit in universities holding study groups and not get a job.

          • Dave Girvin

            More idiotic nonsense, only conservatives think people would rather sit on the couch for $90 a week than work, maybe because that’s what they would do, red states do get a lot more fed assistance than blue states, keep listening to fox.

          • Dave Girvin

            So sad you get confused by words and it’s obvious you didn’t attend any university.

          • FarOutlier

            All of Obama’s agencies lie. IRS lies. DOJ lies. CDC lies. Obama lies. NOAA lies. Labor Department lies. State department lies. DOD lies. They all lies. You black guy is a liar and he has others lie for him too.

          • Joan Lussier

            I agree !

          • Scott Fairview

            Global cooling was pushed by a very small group of climatologists

          • Punditator

            And was just as inaccurate and stupid.

          There was a study that came out in December 2014 and was immediately buried by the media. Electric cars are the worst polluters in the U.S., since mort of our electricity comes from coal, and most electric cars are in use in areas that rely on coal power plants. Also, the pollution created when the batteries are made contributes to their lowest ranking.

          Ethanol was determined to cause more pollution than regular, non-blended gasoline.

          Diesel and hybrids (that don’t use ethanol) were considered the best, followed by regular gasoline vehicles, then ethanol, then electric cars.

        • AmericanMade77

          You are correct, electricity is used to transfer energy. We are still burning coal, etc. to create the energy.

        • krypt_o

          Don’t forget the production of the vehicle. Oil is used in every step of that process. Oil is literally used for everything. Modern, civilized society wouldn’t be possible without oil. If these warmists are serious about their convictions, they need to go live out in a forest in a log cabin they built themselves and only eat food they kill or gather themselves with tools not made using oil, so basically sticks. Hypocrites. All of them.

          • the great kazoo

            Yeah.
            If the warmist really believe what they are saying, then why aren’t they living like it?
            At least the tinfoil doomsday prepers are putting their money where their mouth is…
            All that just tells me that “global warming” really is just a scam.

          It sufficiently confuses liberals into thinking they are doing nice nice. Remember, liberals suffer from an extreme lack of the concept of cause and effect.

            You mean like pumping smoke into a closed environment for centuries… what could happen? Go sit in your car in the garage, close the door and start the engine… what could happen? I think you got it backwards there.

        Yeah nevernind the emissions by power plants to generate the charge power of car LION batteries that takr hours to recharge

        • Slippy

          There was a study that came out in December 2014 and was immediately buried by the media. Electric cars are the worst polluters in the U.S., since most of our electricity comes from coal, and most electric cars are in use in areas that rely on coal power plants. Also, the pollution created when the batteries are made contributes to their lowest ranking.

          Ethanol was determined to cause more pollution than regular, non-blended gasoline.

          Diesel and hybrids (that don’t use ethanol) were considered the best, followed by regular gasoline vehicles, then ethanol, then electric cars.

          • wiseoldfart

            When we finally wake up and start replacing coal plants with much safer midsize nukes and mini-nukes, we can then go about phasing in fully electric vehicles as lithium-based battery packs finally come of age. Electric cars can now go over 200 miles between recharges, as demonstrated by Tesla. The trick is to get a vehicle to go 200 miles on an 80-90% recharge that takes 15 minutes or less. Gas stations will gladly install recharging stations to attract the EV crowd to their convenience stores. No problem there.

          • tonyrohl

            Wish I could afford an 80K Tesla. My calendar shows its 2015. Obama said there would be one million electric cars on the road by now. Oops, there are only 232K and all of them carry huge government subsidies (other peoples money)

            The problem with nuclear power is that when something goes wrong it tends to render the surrounding area uninhabitable for around 10,000 years.

          • http://batman-news.com cdw

            Yes, that definitely happened with the Russian reactor in Chernobyl.

            However, that type of disaster can be muted with design. Even the Japanese reactors melted down, but it was not a Chernobyl-style apocalypse.

            Check out the plans for a Thorium 232 reactor, which is an evolution in design. Thorium is much more plentiful than Uranium, but must first be converted to fissionable U233 with neutron capture.

            Light-water BWRs MUST be continuously cooled, even after a quick shut down. The Thorium design does not require this.

            Excellent point. It is sometimes an engineering “trade off”.

            Well-burned fossil fuels have NO exhaust gases other than H2O and CO2.

          • Jeffrey A Jones

            Correct, that is why high-quality coal such as anthracite and bituminous should be preserved for future generations, if possible, if there is an alternative like nuclear for generating electricity.

            Once the high quality coal is gone, electric-arc furnaces will be required for smelting.

          • KevinM

            Many US based smelters and foundries today have no other choice but to utilize arc furnaces due to the environmental restrictions. This is especially the case with newly constructed or renovated facilities. Of which we rarely see today. Another burden on a dwindling American employment provider.

            Actually, no. In the correct region (sunny desert), solar does quite well.

            My 8.8 kW system generated 15,556 kWH in one year, enough cool, heat, and run the house (fairly well insulated) – AND I sent 5,300 kWH back to the utility and was paid for it.

            Are you getting paid back from subsidizing the oil companies?

            The subsidy the oil companies receive is the same tax credit for R&D that is given to any company that researches and develops any new product or process. Same credits are given to those that produce wind and solar equipment as well as those that employ them.

            Yes, we do need to start now. We need to start perfecting the technology so that WHEN we make the switch from fossil to renewable it makes sense. What you are advocating is nothing short of national suicide. The technology isn’t there. Not by a long shot. Don’t tell me we need to start as in the government does. This is a job for private industry. Which can do it cheaper, quicker, and more efficiently. There is no emergency. That’s the political side of this scientific bate raring its ugly head and pulling on your heart strings. Don’t give in to fear mongering. Science keeps a cooler head. What you are seeing is nothing more than a collection of fools who have based their livelihood on government grants scurrying for cover while the rug is pulled out from under them. Nothing I’ve seen yet has explained the pause. CO2 and other so-called “greenhouse gases” have been on the rise in the previous 20 years, yet no warming. There literally is no emergency.

            CO, NO, and SO2 are, but CO and NO have short half-lives in the presence of sunlight.

        • Jeffrey A Jones

          Electric cars are coal powered cars. Electricity and hydrogen, darlings of the tree-hugger class ARE NOT SOURCES OF ENERGY, THEY ARE ENERGY TRANSPORT MEDIA. Solar and wind are unreliable miliwatt sources of energy. the only place you are going to get the energy necessary to GENERATE electricity and hydrogen is from hydrocarbons and nuclear sources. Period. For ever. Unfortunately the government educated population is too ignorant of that fact to affect any change in the narrative so I am reconciled to paying Gov. Moonbeam’s Carbon Tax here in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia. I only have to do that until I retire from my oilfield job where I make obscene amounts of money, then I will move to Texas and leave this hell-hole to the illegal immigrants to wallow in.

            No, in the *sunny desert*, photovoltaic modules are quite reliable and generate HUGE amounts of electricity.

          • Skeptical

            NO! Those photovoltaic modules are made from…..wait for it……PETROLEUM products and will never produce more energy than they required to be built, transported, installed, maintained…etc., etc. Never mind the environmental disaster of smoking millions of birds that fly into the glaring reflection of those panels.

          • http://batman-news.com cdw

            NO! The Energy-return on Energy-invested (ERoEI) for PV modules is 20:1.

            Can you name the single item used in the manufacture of PV modules, that uses the MOST petroleum? Bet you can’t. This is a test of your knowledge.

          • Skeptical

            That may be the return on the building of the unit itself. But the fact is the cost to purchase and install all the equipment can never be recouped. You could spend $50000 installing a decent system. And the systems tend to become less efficient after 10-15 years and may well need to be replaced…another investment. Technology isn’t there yet. And the cost (short of government subsidy) is prohibitive.

          • http://batman-news.com cdw

            An 8.8 kW system can be installed on a three-tab shingle roof for about $22,000. That is the system I have and it is *quite* decent, for the sunny desert.

            The rated degradation on my *monocrystalline* U.S. manufactured panels is 0.7% per year. Their *proven lifetime* is at least 50 years. After 50 years, they will be producing at 65% of rated output.

            They are rated to survive the impact of a 50 mph one-inch hailstone. I had a half-inch hail storm last March.

            Yes, silicon PV module (solar panel) efficiencies are now 19% (for affordable modules).

            The theoretical efficiency limit for silicon cells is 30-33%.

          • G Anderson

            You are confusing solar panels with reflector arrays. Solar panels aren’t going to roast flying birds.

          • Jeffrey A Jones

            I live in the Southern San Joaquin Valley of Kalifornia, probably the best place for solar power in any inhabited area of the US and we installed solar on our roof last April. We did it because our summer power bill was hitting $800/month. It has pretty much zeroed out our power bill but trust me, it is not economic compared to decently price conventional power. Our electric rates are being screwed up by the PUC and Moonbeam Brown’s idiot tree-hugger policies which skew utility prices horribly upward by at least two-fold over the cost of generation. And even in our drought stricken area which has clear skies for the vast majority of time, there are enough overcast days (and even if there weren’t, winter months with the low sun only produce about 30% of max power) that we must supplement heavily with utility power to make ends meet. In other words, if you went 100% solar, you still need 100% installed backup generating power. Then there are the 14 hours of dusk/night that cause real problems. Solar is not and never will be more than a small supplemental source of power.

          • http://batman-news.com cdw

            Agreed. California electric rates are so high, I understand, it could be profitable to pay someone to peddle an exercise bicycle with an attached generator (LOL).

            For comparison with your system:

            I harvested 15,556 kWH in last year with a well-designed 8.8 kW system (almost no shading). The overcast months (right after you lose your NEM credits after being paid) are the most difficult, though.

            Near 12 noon (peak sun from the South), I routinely get 6+ kW production. However, high temperatures reduce production by -0.40% per degree C over 25 degrees C, cell temperature.

          • Jeffrey A Jones

            Your system is just slightly smaller than mine. Mine is rate 9.7kw best I got in June was about 7.8kw. Diurnal and seasonal variations just make it not practical. Sounds sexy but Americans are used to and deserve power at their fingertips. There is no technical or economic reason we can’t have all the energy we need to drive this engine of liberty for ever. We don’t have energy problems, we have government problems. Energy is what made us the miracle country that we are (plus a pretty good constitution) and to throw that away for some crazy tree-hugger fairytale is sinful. I’ve notice the heat problem too. we get our best 15 minute report right after a cloud goes by when the panels are coolest, sun is brightest. Plus in our dusty climate I have to go up and wash them off a couple times a week during the summer. I am an engineer and love fooling with tech like this but it isn’t economic and fairly high maintenance.

            Q: Why is “diversity” and “multiculturalism” demanded in All white populations & Only white populations?

            A: Diversity means Chasing Down the Last White Person.

            Racial/cultural elimination is the white “privilege”.

            Q: Why don’t Self-Proclaimed “anti-racists” attack the “racist” immigration and social policies of, say, Japan? Korea? Mexico?

            A: Anti-racist is a Codeword for Anti-White

            A. Because race is irrelevant to the topic of science. Race is not a scientific category.

            Yeah, the same nine that said a baby is tissue that can be legally ripped from the mothers womb, and that the Ten Commandments shouldn’t be in schools because students might be tempted to follow them. Yeah the same bozos that said forcing Americans to buy a product (obambacare) is constitutional will now decide if perversion and deviance is normal and worthy of “Holy” matrimony. Surely today evil is called good and good is called evil by the SCOTUS!

            Do you have auto insurance? Are you going to take care of an unwanted child that will most likely grow up in poverty? Are you going to allow the Koran in your schools?

            How on earth can you equate two humans marrying with a human and an animal? Are you the same kind of person that equates being Gay as being a pedophile. I think the people with the best record of deviance are the religious ones who think that they can foist their beliefs on populations of whole countries. Only a few steps away from stoning people for not believing. Religion was invented in the dark ages (Except the more recent ones that saw a money making and or control making opportunity) To keep people under control of a particular group. The inherent denial most people have that when they die they cease to exist anywhere just like before they were conceived. Has led to catastrophic harm on our planet. and will get worse NOT better unless our leaders grow some balls. Sticking your nose into someone else’s marriage is one of the consequences of that. If you believe that somehow, Gay people wanting the same rights as you already have is somehow taking away from what you have. You are seriously immature and insecure!

            Well, Davey boy, let me explain: Once I strightened out the sentence structure in your ‘comment’ so I could see what you probably were trying to say, it became apparent to me that you hadn’t read “Punditator’s” comment above, referring to North Korean unicorns. When you ‘Googled’ “gook” you missed one of the explanations there that the term “gook” was first used by U.S. Marines. You further missed that it was used extensively during the Korean “police action” as a derogatory term toward the North Korean enemies of the world. If you’ve ever set foot in North Korea (which obviously you haven’t), you would understand the use of the phrase. So, just continue your judgmental denigrations and try to be happy. I do sincerely wish you well. Semper Fi.

        Ignoratio Elenchi is where they find one irrelevant fact to the report that may be wrong and therefore claim the entire report is FALSE.

      Even taking their data at face value, they claim that the previous years for “highest temperature ever” was a tie between 2005 and 2010.

      2014 is higher by….. drum roll…. 1/25 of a degree.

      That’s right. 0.04 degrees.

      That’s WAY BELOW the margin of error.

      So in other words, the temperature has been completely flat since 2005, no warming in a decade. THAT’S WHAT THEIR OWN DATA SHOWS.

      I quote Morano: “Claiming 2014 is the “hottest year” on record based on hundredths of a degree temperature difference is a fancy way of saying the global warming ‘pause’ is continuing.”

      That’s the actual headline. Not HOTTEST YEAR ON RECORD. But no statistically discernible change in a decade or more. Temperature flat.

There is no real evidence except from agenda driven institutions. Wake up and smell the real world. Really when you get down to the reality of it all, the climate on earth has been in flux since it was formed billions of years ago. The idea that we can influence the climate is a non starter.

      I like how they say that this warming period must be due to man and the odds of it being natural was 650 million to one. Unfortunately if they look at their own temperature charts and go back only 150,000 years, the planet was warmer, before it descended into a long cold streak, broken only in the last 12-15000 years. This is where the Flood myths all come from.

      Actually, they “calibrate” them frequently. The trick is, what they call “calibration” is actually “miscallibration.” Literally. I mean that if a land-based weather recording station gives data which does not support “the model,” they adjust the output of that station until it does “fit the model.”

      That the model is utterly false, and does not fit the REAL data… that’s of no consequence to scammers like Hansen. What matters is “how can we use this to alter human behavior,” not “is this true, or is this false?”

      They are, honestly, just plain evil. Sociopathic.

    • Spanky T Smackme

      Don’t forget that most of the measuring apparatus are located near MASSES of concrete and other heat storing material which affects the localized temperature, then add the fabricated hocky stck to it and you have bold faced liars. Move the measuring devices out to the country free from man made items and you will see a difference, confirming a COOLING trend
      These cycles have been going on for millions of years and to implicate man as the cause ( without nuclear wars that is) is like sticking you head in the sand. The warming, we have had since the last ice age, is a NATURAL event. Now we are reversing to a cooler time.

    • John “Kahless” Taylor

      Well, you know, breathing, flatulence…all leads to more CO2 and methane leaking into the atmosphere (that’s what they’ll say). The ultimate goal of these people are to eliminate most of the human population (which means get rid of the poor and middle class). Funny thing, when I eat just fruits and vegetables, I tend to flatulate more. I have asked the same question and have gotten no answers. I have also asked what proof is there that humans, and not nature, is causing this. Scientists have shown that Earth has gone through periods of global warming and cooling for eons, yet for some reason, this time it must be humans fault. How did it happen eons ago? Did someone from the future travel back in time with a V8 engine? I find it really odd that these same people make fun of people of faith (in God) but seem to have all this faith in these scientists who say we are the cause of global warming without proving why they believe this.

    • kamenetz

      No problem, 18 or so years as Meteorologist. It’s actually quite simple, and boils down to two key components. The sun has cycles in how much energy that nuclear cauldron puts out. It’s certainly not constant and fluctuates. If one sees the comparison of how large the sun compared to Earth, even being 93 million miles away, yeah it has an impact far above anything else. Second, volcanoes, those put out far more “emissions” than we ever could possibly by heavy industry or driving. In the Middle Ages the sun went into a cycle known as the Maunder Minimum and there were huge volcanic eruptions. For example, in 1815 Mt. Tambora in Indonesia exploded releasing 38 cubic miles of ash, which caused worldwide climate change and in the N. Hemisphere for 2 years there were NO summers. Plenty of records on this, on how much crop failure and starvation was caused by it. If this happened today, the effects would be far worse. Volcanic activity has perked up recently but it’s actually very quiet in that regard and something big will come, it’s inevitable. The volcanoes are far smaller of the two key factors. There isn’t enough out there to determine how the sun is going to behave. What we put out in CO2, methane, etc… is minutia. The only way man can truly change the climate would be a nuke war. Everything else is largely irrelevant. Now, I’m all for a cleaner environment, green energy, less sprawl, etc etc, but we have to establish the green energy as reliable first, which it is not at this point.

      • JohnnyBrillcream

        Question for you. I understand the volcano’s, ash can be pulled from ice cores. How do we know about the sun cycle that far back?? Thanks in advance.

        • kamenetz

          No “direct” ice core evidence for the sun cycles. It’s mostly written records of astronomers at the time of when sun spots were observed or not. Sun spots meaning the sun is “hotter”, no sun spots means it’s relatively “cooler”. The Maunder Minimums feature few if any sun spots and means the sun isn’t as active or putting out as much energy as when it has sun spots. Another way to look and compare is like when you’re boiling water on the stove. When the water is cooler and the stove is on, it’s moving but not bubbling when boiling. The “bubbles” on the sun show as sun spots. All depends on the nuclear reaction within the sun and that is way harder to predict then any weather forecast. You’re absolutely right the ash layers can be found and accounted for. The lower energy of the sun isn’t as easy to tell as say tree rings, because ice compacts and can’t tell exactly one year or a decade of snow/ice accumulation. It’s a combination of “back-fitting” the sun cycles for the written record with today’s computers, adding available tree ring data, any additional written sources. It’s not exact, but regardless, the sun is the #1 weather factor.

    These statistics are a dubious at best. First, most of the world is ocean. In truth weather buoys in the ocean are far and few between, and most are located within 200 miles of land. We don’t have many weather stations out in the open ocean. That’s very significant because it means that a huge percentage of the earth’s surface has no weather data. Second, many places in the eastern 2/3rds of the U.S. had one of their coldest, if not the coldest years ever in 2014. Most Americans were freezing their butts off last winter! Western Europe and parts of Asia also had a harsh winter last year. Nothing matches up here with reality!

    Ah, the “New Age Religion Guru” James Hansen is busy trying to bilk us out of more cash to support his scam.

    We all know that this year has been COOLER than previous years. We also all know that Hansen and his fellow scammers have been caught with their hands in the proverbial cookie jar many times recently, fraudulently falsifying data. And we know that he’s definitely enjoying the “advisor to Al Gore and others” role he’s taken on, and gotten rich off of, all while still receiving a far-too-generous taxpayer-paid compensation package at the same time.

    The fact that Hansen, not long ago, applied a “fudge factor” to data which, in its raw stated, showed cooling trends, resulting in “results” which were forced to be WITHDRAWN BY NASA… should have gotten the SOB fired, long ago.

    But then again, remember, NASA is no longer about putting US interests into space, it’s about “reaching out to Muslims.” (sigh)

    amazing. neo-cons are totally afraid if someone wants to regulate their steel phallus, but have no fear about the reality of climate change. forget the numbers, look around you at the record droughts, record floods, record wildfires, seismic activity in bizarre places (fracking), polar vortexes ruining crops, costal highways closed due to rising water, but yeah….there’s no climate change due to man.

    The Global Warming Alarmists told us that as the earth got warmer, we would see an increase in the number and the intensity of tropical storms.

    We haven’t experienced this.

    If the earth is warmer now and we haven’t had more storms, then Global Warming doesn’t produce more and stronger storms. The prediction was wrong.

    If the prediction is right, that warmer temps do lead to more and stronger storms, then the earth is not getting warmer.

        In the pass five decades, what has the government in the US really done to improve the lives of all it’s citizens? It seems government has the Midis touch but instead of turning everything it touches into gold it turns it instead into a smouldering pile of manure. Take Obama Care for example. What would make any sane individual believe that the government can make our medical care better under Obama Care when we can all see now messed up the Veterans Administration hospitals have been run? Note, the VA is a federal entity not a private entity like most of our medical care use to be.

        You Californians reading this. Remember MTBE and how the Californian government believed it was the answer to the global warming scare by eliminating chemicals in our automobile exhaust that allegedly were damaging our atmosphere? Do you also recall that today MTBE has been the source cause of the shutdown of many of your fresh water wells as it is a carcinogen? How much has MTBE really cost the American people? We don’t know and it will be decades before we can even estimate a cost with any degree of accuracy. But we now know that MTBE is a bad thing and no longer use it. But we shouldn’t have used it in the first place and wouldn’t have used it if it had not been for strong government intervention. Meaning, the government screwed it us, again. The old Midis touch turning stuff into crap.

        How does this happen?

        Because most of America today is either to ignorant about such things or they simply do not care and cannot be bothered to see to it that government operates at the will of the people for their benefit instead of the people existing for the benefit of government and its will. Does the tail wag the dog or does the dog wag the tale? With our government today, currently it’s the tale wagging the dog and we are the one’s forced to jump through the government’s hoops for it’s benefit and entertainment.

    It is undisputed fact that the more CO2 in the atmosphere the more plant life grows which consumes CO2. FACT!

      uh, more CO2, bigger hole in the atmosphere which protects us from the sun’s radiation. ever take a science class? yeah….let’s let plant life take over. in your household it seems to have already taken place.

          ok Dr. jellyfinger, you go ahead and believe that CO2 does NOT emit long wave radiation.

          • M.TWAIN11

            I believe you are emitting long wave radiation as I type this.

  • Brandon

    If man causes “global warming” then how in the hell did the earth thaw from the ice age, long before man was driving cars and living with electricity? I think the sun, the cloud cover, the ocean currents, along with the CO2 released from the oceans, jungles, and volcanoes have much more to do with it. Which brings up another point…..how can CO2 be considered a pollutant when it’s the basic building block of ALL life on this planet. Without CO2 in the atmosphere there would be no plants, trees, grass, etc. Without these there would be no oxygen, and by consequence no people. Wake up libtards, this is basic 2nd grade science.

            i’ll just go ahead and guess that you share brandon’s genius ideas about CO2.

          • M.TWAIN11

            Do you disagree that plant life on earth requires CO2 to exist? Do you disagree that oxygen is required by all animal life? What’s the argument here?

          • Tony

            i agree with both. i disagree that increased CO2 is not harmful due to the long wave radiation.

          • M.TWAIN11

            Of all the myths quoted, calling carbon dioxide a pollutant is the worst – it’s simply is not true! Myth: CO2 is a pollutant. Fact: Totally false. I challenge you to prove otherwise. CO2 is in our every breath, in the carbonated sodas and waters that we drink and in the dry ice that helps us keep our food cold and safe. We breathe in 385 parts per million and then exhale 40,000 parts per million with no ill effects. We breathe the 40,000 ppm into victims needing CPR and it does not cause them to die! The monitoring systems in U.S. submarines do not provide an alert until CO2 levels reach 8,000 ppm which is higher that natural CO2 levels have been on Earth in the last 540 million years. CO2 is a great airborne fertilizer which, as its concentrations rise, causes additional plant growth and causes plants to need less water. Without CO2 there would be no life (food) on Earth. The 100 ppm of CO2 added to the atmosphere since the start of the industrial revolution has caused an average increase in worldwide plant growth of 12 percent and of 18 percent for trees.

          • Tony

            never said it was a pollutant, just that more CO2 means more radiation. thanks for being my research bitch though.

    “Boy it looks hot over there, I can see it with my telescope!” Oops just a mirage….Spock out

  • JohnGaltFan

    Of course, NOAA is the same bastion of brilliance that said the “average temperature for the contiguous U.S. during July was 77.6°F, 3.3°F above the 20th century average, marking the warmest July and all-time warmest month on record for the nation in a period of record that dates back to 1895″ and “the previous warmest July for the nation was in 1936, when the average U.S. temperature was 77.4°F.”

    While NOAA and their fellow global warming/climate change fanatics spent much of their time shouting this “scientific” news to all the world for two years… they weren’t as enthusiastic about letting everyone know they quietly reinstated July 1936 as the hottest month on record in the U.S. sometime in June of 2014 because their “data” (as it turns out) was “flawed.”

      Get over yourself. This website isn’t just saying “we’re right and you’re wrong”, they have presented evidence from climatologists. If you want to believe a group of scientists on one side and not believe another group of scientists, that’s all on you buddy. Talk about closed minded.

      No prediction of doom and gloom has ever come to pass, ever. No biblical prophesy and no scientific or political one. Ten years ago Harry Reid made a big speech in congress saying there would never be any more snow, ever. That was back when the last 3 years of winter had no snow. Ever since then not only have we had snow, but huge blizzards. Guess he was wrong.

      How about I remind you of our Ozone layer? Remember how that was supposed to be gone by now? What you wrote is exactly the rhetorical nonsense I use to hearing back then about the Ozone layer. Everyone predicted doom and gloom and said we all had to change our ways and get taxed. Guess what, they were wrong too!

    Sad but true but a lot of world’s surface temps are estimated,

    even in the US up to 40% are estimated.

    “Fake temperatures are marked with an “E” in their final database, as seen below in the 2008-2011 January-June data for Cadiz, Ohio.

    https://stevengoddard.files.wordpress.com/2014/12/screenhunter_5152-dec-12-22-23.gif

    Nearly 40% of the 2014 final temperatures are marked with an “E” – which is even larger than the 29% percentage of stations which are completely fake. This indicates that they are also making up temperatures for a large number of stations which actually do have thermometer data.”

    http://cran.r-project.org/web/

    A: Accumulated amount. This value is a total that may include data from a previous month or months (TPCP).
    B: Adjusted Total. Monthly value totals based on proportional available data across the entire month. (CLDD, HTDD)

    Within the 3-5 billion year Earth record ,there has always been cooling with periodic warming trends but always cooling. Solar activity and the internal furnace are the primary sources of warming and cooling and the activity of man has little or nothing to do with change in the weather unless we incinerate ourselves with a nuclear war.
    Even then ,over time Earth will survive with new living creatures.

  • Reality_Check

    Finally.

    An article that educates about the scientific method.

    The scientific Theory of Global warming is based on computer models.

    Both climate and weather are too complex to model without computers.

    The hypothesized historic link between man made carbon monoxide entering the atmosphere and global warming is only shown using these computer models. If the models are correct they can not only explain what happened in the past, they can also predict the future.

    The scientific method requires that any scientific model be tested against it’s ability to predict the future.

    If all the existing global warming computing models are unable to accurately predict the future, then scientific method requires that the computer models and hypotheses based on those models be rejected until computer models that both appear to explain history, and also predict the future are found.

    Those who have long questioned the validity of the computer models point out that they only work historically when applied to a very limited number of years ( a couple of hundred years versus thousands of years for which climate data is available ). The defenders of the computer models try to explain away these problems with the model by claiming only the climate data for the last 100 to 200 years is reliable.

    The big problem now is that the models both do not work for most of the existing climate data and they do not work for predicting the future.

    If a scientific hypothesis can neither be used to predict the future nor the past, it fails utterly as a valid scientific theory. That would appear to be where we are at with the theory of predominantly man caused global warming.

    • CIMR

      There are hucksters that use the same tricks showing how they can predict the movements in the stock market “See it works on historical data!” which they fail to mention that they tuned it specifically for.

      The typical warmist believes whatever their Scientists Shamans tell them, even when they contradict themselves and are wrong 100% of the time.

  • Ed Taylor

    ‘Real science’ does not rely on altered data & deception. This form of ‘real science’ seems to be driven by potential profit more than reality.

  • Freeland_Dave

    Ok folks, here is how to spot the lie of global warming.

    It all has to do with how the data is collected and the level of resolution the sensors that detect these temperatures.

    First of all this “argument” is in the 1/100th of a degree, .01 degrees if you will. That means in order to establish any credible figure you need to collect your data repeatedly at the level of 1/1000th of a degree just to filter out the natural “noise” in your data making your .01 degree statement credible.

    Now while there are instruments that can measure to the 1/1000th of a degree with a great deal of accuracy, repeatedly as simply taking one measurement is not enough to establish a trend nor does it account for a measurement that may be botched or wrong because no one bothered to verify it’s accuracy. The proper way would be to take ten or more measurements repeatedly, cast aside the high and the low and then average the remaining measurements to yield one figure. Because of the noise factor and natural inaccuracies at the 1/1000th of a degree resolution point you can then only establish the 1/100th of a degree point with any reasonable precision.

    Secondly, there are no temperature sensors deployed on any space platform that can repeatedly determine any temperature on earth to the 1/100th of a degree precision point. They simply not exist. I know this from having spent a lifetime working with such instruments on space craft, the very same spacecraft that produced the data these scientists are arguing about.

    Third, while earth bound instruments are capable of directly monitoring temperature at the 1/100th of a degree precision point, they are few in number, expensive, and have only been around for a decade or so. What do you think we use to calibrate the temperature data from the sensors we place on the space craft? Note: Your level of precision is only as good as the source you used to calibrate it. You simply cannot infer levels of precision, that has to be established from a calibrated source. And even then, over a period of time you need to recalibrate your sensor as the quality of its data, precision wise, deteriorates over time. That’s a virtual impossibility on an orbiting satellite.

    So you can easily see the lie being told about a 1/100th degree temperature rise of the planet based on satellite sensor data.

    So what about measuring it on earth?

    Well, first of all we do not have enough of those instruments, or the manpower, or the money that would be needed to pay for it, to accomplish the feat.

    For one, you would need to precisely measure the temperature of every square inch of the earth’s surface all at the same time. We do not have the technology to do that nor do we have the technology to process the data gathered from so many temperatures.

    Even then, if such things were possible, they would have only been possible very recently as the devices to establish levels of temperature at the 1/100th of a degree precision point, didn’t exist and have only been assumed, based on data that was collected by various people in different ways and even then they could only establish temperatures in the 1/10th of a degree precision point at best and are actually plus or minus a full degree, which is actually a two degree level of accuracy. It then could be 32 degrees or 30 degrees, based on the level of accuracy the temperature sensors then could resolve. Magic with numbers.

    It also illustrates the problem when we have only been gathering global data on a regular basis for less than one hundred years as there were no formal recognized organizations in existence that would establish the procedures of taking temperature to where every scientist on earth were doing it the same way. One procedure may have been correct while other procedures may not have been correct, thus adding to the inaccuracies in the data that would yield faulty results.

    Terrestrial weather monitoring stations were created worldwide approximately 50 years ago. When they were installed they were placed in remote areas away from mankind so that man’s activities would not affect the accuracy of the data they were to gather. Even then, the sensor devices had their own inaccuracy problems and the process assumed that all of these monitoring stations were installed the same way everywhere. Not to mention the fact that they are two few in number to establish a statement of a 1/100th degree rise in global temperature as they do not populate every square inch of the earth’s surface or are all capable of conducting their temperature measurements all at the same time.

    Another problem with these terrestrial weather monitoring stations is the fact that since they were initially installed they have suffered the effects of encroachment caused by man and man made activities. For example, the weather monitoring station in Redding California was installed at the airport far and away from man made activities. Today, it hasn’t moved, but it’s located adjacent to the tarmac where jet aircraft run up their engines as they check them out before taking off. In other words, the data coming from this station is no longer accurate because of the effects of very local changes in the micro-climate caused by man, or more specifically, these aircraft.

    Now Redding’s station isn’t the only station that is suffering the effects of micro-climates changed because of mankind’s local activities. But it doesn’t mean that it adversely effects the world climate which is only assumed from computations derived from data that is suspect in the first place. First in he methodology by which it was collected, where it was collected, when it was collected and when the device collecting the data was calibrated and to what degree of precision the calibrator possessed.

    So next time some alarmist comes up to you with the warning of a 1/100th degree of temperature change and attributes that being caused by mankind, at least you will now know enough to determine for yourself whether he or she is just a crackpot or some who you should give your attention and money to.

    Look at it this way, if it were possible to instantaneously establish a 1/100th degree precision point with our temperature it would then be easily possible to predict the earth’s weather patterns more than 48 hours in advance and they would always be accurate. We can’t, the way they go about alarming the populace for the sake of grant money and what we can do about it is what the real problem is all about.

    Perhaps if the majority of these alarmists would just shut their mouths for awhile we would then see a drop in the world’s temperature as all of that hot carbon-dioxide laden air wouldn’t be released into our earth’s atmosphere.

    A real climate scientist, Ben Franklin, the real-life discoverer of the
    warm-water Gulf Stream, is cloned, and returns to today to mock government
    scientists in “Foundering Fathers!”:

    “…Franklin wanted to ask the climate expert about something that was
    bothering him. A few weeks earlier, he’d taken a train to the mid-Atlantic
    shore, and spent the day exploring and studying some seaside spots he’d visited
    in his earlier life.

    “I was wondering about something, sir,” Franklin stated. “I’m something of an
    amateur historian, and I’ve, uh, I’ve studied accounts and drawings of
    coastlines and harbors from centuries ago. According to your theories of
    warming, the sea level in such locales should have risen by hundreds of feet.”
    He thought back to the coasts he’d recently visited. “But in many cases, those
    shore lines of old are practically identical to today’s. How do you account for
    that?”

    The climate “scientist” eyed Franklin with some suspicion. Then he smoothly
    replied: “The answer is simple. Warming has been melting the ice caps, which
    should make the sea levels rise.

    “But the ice caps, being icy, are cold, and when icebergs from them fall into
    the ocean, some of the warming is mitigated. Think of the icebergs as giant ice cubes, cooling off the seas, and the ice caps.

    “Further, the planet has warmed so much, that it’s evaporated the water that
    has melted, resulting in sea levels, and coast lines, that are nearly equal to
    before…”

    Sets of temperature data differ. A truly accurate reading seems almost impossible. But what can be derived from the readings is temperatures are not going off the scale and are generally in normal ranges. The left’s political science propaganda scammers once again try and jump on this as proof of their warming agenda. But don’t lose site of the point. Even if termperatures are increasing slightly there is no proof it’s caused by AGW and not just natural causes. NO PROOF. And scammers like Borenstein don’t have any either.

      If on the other hand you are just calling names and not disputing the facts at all, well we all know what that makes you.

      The man made global warming theory must be able to both explain thousands of years of historical climate data and predict the future.

      It has failed at both and only works for a few hundred years of historical data at best. For a few years after the hypothesis was proposed it appeared that a very tiny trend of global warming matched the predictions, but now we have had 16 years that did NOT match the predictions. The ability to predict the future has failed.

      The scientific method requires that a hypothesis be able to predict the future if it is to even be considered a scientific theory.

    At this point the scientific theory of man made global warming is not just an unproven scientific hypothesis, it is a
    proven false scientific hypothesis.

    By contrast, the non-scientific media theory of climate change is not, and never has been a scientific
    theory, since by definition any change in climate proves the theory correct thereby making the theory impossible to prove false with any test, which is the very definition of non-science.

    I’m so frightened now I’ll do anything, pay anything, for these “scientist” to save me. How much and where do i send the check? Can they just set the thermostat at a pleasant 72 degrees and move on?

  • JorgXMckie

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t water vapor a much more efficient greenhouse gas than CO2? Where is the government program to eliminate evaporation of the oceans???

    • Buddy

    • Daninfla6th

      There you go confusing the progressives with facts. How will they ever crown their leader as emperor if you espouse facts?

    • oracle2world

      I will correct you. Efficient? Methane is a very potent greenhouse gas. It is just there is a s*-load (that is a technical term) of water vapor in the atmosphere. The water vapor / clouds swamp out the contribution of anything else.

      • JorgXMckie

        Point taken. I guess I should have added the following comment: “The left won’t address this fact — add the methane to the water vapor — because there is no convenient way to address this problem. These are naturally occurring substances. However, CO2, the *least* effective greenhouse gas is emitted by cars, factories… ie large industries that can be “taxed or embarrassed” by government regulation. Not to mention, there are less brownie points for attacking water vapor that there are for taxing industry.

    This is the funniest joke I have seen in the news in the last 6 months. I have to give the liberals credit for creativity and imagination. They outdid themselves with .07 degrees over 18 years. Maybe I read it wrong. I think the world has bigger problems than that for the multitudes since we are on the brink of economic collapse which will generate a world war. That I believe is a much bigger issue.

  • Dave Park

    Were the methods of calculating world wide temperatures accurate enough 100 years ago?

    • Reality_Check

      As the true believers of man made global warming have pointed out repeatedly weather is not climate.

      The trends the true believers are looking for regarding predicting the future are in the hundredths of a degree change each year. For over 16 years even those very modest increases in temperature have not occurred as predicted.

      Historic climate data shows both global warming and global cooling on a much larger scale.

      For example Greenland is covered with ice today and has a climate today that is much too cold to raise horses or cattle without importing food for the animals on a huge scale.

      However, hundreds of years before man began spewing industrial CO2 into the worlds atmosphere European settlers had huge dairy farms on Greenland. Then the climate shifted by tens of degrees ( not hundredths of degrees ) per year and both the dairy herds and the European settlers died out.

      Archeology and crop records tell us these things world wide. Instruments that measure to the nearest hundredth of a degree are not needed for such huge changes in climate.

      The current Global Warming computer models utterly fail when applied to historic climate data from more than a couple 100 years ago.

  • oracle2world

    I do not think these NOAA and NASA folks are scientists. They do not understand significant figures. Half a degree F seems reasonable. Claiming a precision of 0.01 F is nonsensical. I am glad these folks are in “Global Warming / Climate Change / Mitigation / Extreme Weather” … otherwise they could do some real damage.
    .

    • west129

      I agree. Using computers I expect the result to have at least 12 decimal places. Somebody has been cheating here! The significant number might be in the “one’s” place. However, 12 more digits behind it would make it way more credible!

            You are right! Our side will win. Obama and the EPA will see to that.

            I can’t wait to hear Obama’s announcement of the rescue mission from the impending global warming disaster in his upcoming State of the Union Address. Our progress and implementation of the corrective actions will be swift, especially since we now have the Pope and his infallibility on our side!

  • Agent__86

    Agreed. I’ve never looked hotter.

  • DennisS

    OK. I was a meteorologist, with 30 years experience. 20 of those years were in the US Air Force, dealing mainly with aviation meteorology topics. One of the primary tools I used to evaluate the atmosphere in the vertical was an atmospheric sounding, or Log P Skew-T, thermo-dynamic diagram. A fancy way of saying a balloon sounding. We used this information to compute pressure altitude (PA), and density altitude (DA). These were critical for aviation, as lift is reduced by heat, as well as by elevation. The value we used to compute PA and DA was called The Standard Atmosphere. Bear with me, I’m going somewhere with this. Back when I started in the weather business, this standard atmosphere, this mathematical CONSTANT, was 14 degrees celsius, as surface. Converted to English, this is 57.2F. As an Instructor in the Dept. of Defense Weather Training Division (all enlisted weather forecasters are trained here, for USAF, USMC, and USN…Army doesn’t have weather guys/gals), I taught this for years. Quite by accident, I discovered recently that the formula for computing PA and DA have been changed…one degree have been added to them. Yes…the mathematical constant for the average temperature of the atmosphere, critical for aviation safety, was modified. The constant. By scientists, that don’t give a shit about global climate change, or don’t care whether you are democrats or republicans. They. Don’t. Care. They’re scientists. THIS was when I realized that global climate change was real, and getting worse. I am 58 now..but I will see, in my lifetime, this mathematical constant go up again, from the current 15, up to some higher value.

  • ReagansZombie

    I admire publications like the LA times and others, who have made the editorial choice to no longer give voice to climate change deniers. We get so caught up in equal time for dissenting opinion that we often give voice to ridiculous mind sets. It is as if an article about volcanic eruption would need to be balanced by a group claiming plate tectonics is some kind of power grab conspiracy. Those who choose to bury their heads in the sand cannot be helped. However there is no need to let them inhibit progress by clouding the issues at hand.

          More & more, America is seeing thru the lies, as the comments on this & other comment sections will attest.

    NASA has zero credibility under Obama and the man he appointed chief, Charles Bolden:

    “When I became the NASA administrator, (President Obama) charged me with three things,” Bolden said in the interview which aired last week. “One, he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering.”

    The climate is changing – sometimes it is warmer in places than it normally is and sometimes it is colder. Most of the increased energy from the sun, at least what we’re told every single time there is a coronal eruption from the sun (and nobody would seriously argue that we’re changing the sun would they?) makes it to earth by way of increased warmth and some days it is 1/100th of a degree warmer than it is on other days. This whole thing is such a disaster because people actually have sufficient levels of hubris to believe WE can change the climate of the earth in a SIGNIFICANT way. The West is so worried about climate change that we are missing the biggest issue to face the civilized world: radical Islamists taking up residence in places like France and Germany where it USED to be easy to get energy because they used nuclear technology, but after fears of a tsunami (from where – who knows) they opted for the reliable and dirty fuels coming form Putin’s Russia.

Largest one in CO history stopped 2 miles from my house after 138 M acres burned then three years ago the most costly and two years ago the new most costly fire. Last year you couldn’t start a fire pouring gas on pine needles. Now tell me which one is caused by global warming?

      Humans don’t live past a 100 years normally. The geologic deep time of nature is in the billions of years. Our little blip of perception isn’t a major indicator of the big picture. The dark ages were a period of global warming while the 1700 -1900s were a period of a mini-ice age.

    Global Warming was politically correct before scientists had a chance to look into it. By the time they got around to looking into it, the politically correct crowd would have had them fired, or lynched them and their co-workers for daring to oppose their attempt to care for the environment (even though their policies would harm it). The illusion of caring is more important than the damage that their ignorance causes.

  • Reality_Check

    Nothing short term about the taxes proposed by the global warming fanatics.

    They want permanent taxes on every financial transaction in the world and permanent taxes on every BTU of energy used in the world.

          • Perso Nasplit

            Heat Island effect has more effect than CO2/Methane. Urban cities, collecting heat. Thermometers that were once in a field, but are now surrounded by concrete jungles and glass skyscrapers. The data is flawed, unless you take ice core samples, and ice core samples arent a day to day measurement.

          • Perso Nasplit

            If you have a thermometer, measuring the temp in one area, as a scientific method would have you not move the thermometer, you get a temperature. Then next year, you get another temp average. Then next year another. 20 years down the road, the city nearby has spread, and your thermometer is now surrounded by a city. What happens to the temp? What happens when temp rise in relation to WIND? weather patterns change. Weather patterns change and the once cooling wind doesnt blow as far south and is re-directed elsewhere or blocked.

            The temp isnt being increased, the dtaa isnt being taken into account. We are in an inter-glacial period, and we WILL start cooling. Maybe not in our lifetimes, maybe not in our kids. We may warm a few degrees until them, but that doesnt mean the world will burn unless we raise taxes on gas.

        • historyguy48

          “Caring” is a meaningless word when one is discussing actual events of the distant past. When this planet was an ice ball the only life that was here was in the then omnipresent ocean.
          However, there is evidence that prior to the last ice age mankind may have had a highly technical civilization that was destroyed by that ice age or the aftermath of said age. There are observable ruins on the floor of the Mediterranean and Black seas because the water level was lower by 450-500 feet. There are also unexplainable artifacts that don’t correlate with the knowledge of the civilization that has them like the “Mayan” calendar which measures accurately the Earths unobservable precession.
          I realize that it is easier to buy into lies than it is to learn actual history. The truth is that this planet doesn’t “care”, it responds to actual stimulus like the energy that comes from the Sun or the lack thereof.

  • t from NJ

    Again no disrespect to the climatologist at Rutgers we don’t have temperatures before 5000 years and like electronics,rate sensing equipment,etc you can have reoccurances over longer periods of time,that is this higher temp(assuming for now their data is correct) may be normal every 1million years.

    Thank-you.

    The reason the educated defenders of man made global warming will tell any lie to avoid admitting, what you just admitted, is that scientists know such an admission proves that the hypothesis’s prediction ability has not even been tested yet. After that admission all a scientist can say in support is the hypothesis has not been adequately tested yet and is neither true nor false – just untested.

    That is the reason the lie about the 2014 is the warmest year in history is being repeated over and over again.

    Global temperature change in the last 16 years has been flat withing the margin of error and the man made global warming hypothesis predicts it will increase steadily. One could argue, as you just did, that 16 years mean nothing, but the problem is, those same people have claimed the 16 years of prediction before it were more than enough to settle the science.

    If a period of 16 years of prediction is not enough, then there is no theory of man made global warming just an untested hypothesis – the scientific method catches liars every time – it just takes time.

    Climate change is one of the tools they are using to force this change on us. They want us BROKE AND BUSTED, living in large cities and dependent on THEM. We will go and beg from them for everything… for food, electricity, and healthcare.

    Basically, they want the ENTIRE WORLD to look like NORTH KOREA. That is why they are shutting things down all over the world. This is why Obama and the EPA is shutting down our PERFECTLY GOOD power plants, straining the system, and raising electric prices.

      Um… climate has been changing for 10 years, 100 years and 10,000,000 years… I think people with a brain know that people contribute less than 3% of CO2 and that the earth, that C02 is responsible for plant growth and the correlate them to green house effects is the most moronic thing a person could ever say!

      • Brachium

        Is 3% a lot or a little? The fact that CO2 is essential does not mean more is better.

        • DL

          It means that we are the underwhelming factor in C02 emissions you puppet boy…. And you missed the point, C02 is good for plant growth which leads to more food and so forth, but never mind….

          • Brachium

            What is the foundation for your speculative argument than 3% is insignificant? 3% of carbon monoxide would be deadly.

    • historyguy48

      Since the Maunder Minimum ended in 1855 there hasn’t been even 200 years of “normal” weather. Or is it normal? perhaps it is the Maunder Minimum that is normal?
      Or perhaps the roughly 75,000 years of ice ages during the last 105,000 years on this planet is normal.
      Who knows?

      • Brachium

        And what is your response to the correlation between the industrial revolution and use of fossil fuels and the beginning of increasing temperatures?

        • Sal Minella

          See graph below for a comparison of global average temps during the industrial era. Amazingly stable temp while CO2 has grown 10X.

          • Brachium

            I don’t see a graph.

          • Sal Minella

            For the Blind, here it is again.

          • Brachium

            I see a chart with a vertical scale from -40 to +120, and a horizontal scale from 1881 to 2013, and a bunch of vertical red bar reaching to about 55. What am I supposed to glean from this?

          • Sal Minella

            Yearly global average temp from Goddard Institute. You seem to have trouble assimilating simple information.

          • Brachium

            I’m not sure your chart is coming through correctly. A vertical range of 160 degrees when we are looking for changes of 2 to 5 degrees masks the changes. Is this the way the chart was suppose to come through?

          • Sal Minella

            The scale represents the real range of temperature and the chart simulates an alcohol thermometer. We are not looking at a difference of 2 to 5 degrees, we are looking a variation of around one degree in an average around 58 degrees F. There are many issues with measurement precision, accuracy, and data manipulation that make the averages suspect, however, this chart illustrates that the temp has been about 58 degrees F even during a period of rapid CO2 growth and heat generation from the human population. It is a great illustration of the Chicken Little behavior of the warmistas.

          • Brachium

            Traditionally, scientist try to adjust the vertical scale to the range of variability of the data. A range from -40 to +120 makes no sense. You could have made the bottom absolute zero if you wanted to hide the data better.

        • BigSwittersFan

          correlation and causation rarely have anything to do with each other.

          • Brachium

            Which is precisely why I didn’t say the industrial revolution cause it. But you can’t just ignore it.

        • historyguy48

          Isn’t it strange that the industrial revolution occurred during the Maunder Minimum? Isn’t it even stranger that during the last 105,000 years there were three separate and distinct ice ages that all lasted roughly 25,000 years?
          It must have been those pesky cave men driving around in their nasty SUV’s.

          • Brachium

            What is all of that arm waving supposed to mean?

          • historyguy48

            I’m trying to drive the bats out of your belfry.

          • Brachium

            You will need to construct a cogent and coherent argument without the hyperbole to do that.

          • historyguy48

            Why would I want to do that? Bats are an endangered species. Progressives aren’t, at least not yet.

          • Brachium

            If you can’t make a cogent and coherent argument why didn’t you just say so?

    • t from NJ

      Again you can have the same plots that happens every say every 1million years. For Christ sakes I know this and I’m only an engineer,yet PhD’s forget simple statistics.

  • wiseoldfart

    Global warming is good. Ice ages are bad. We’re now entering bad. Just look at the record amount of ice on and around Antarctica, despite the increase in volcanic activity on the western side. The sea ice at the North Pole is also growing. And Al Gore predicted just the opposite. I’m not sure if his problem is more greed or more stupidity. Regardless, it’s a combination of both.

  • JennyB

    Live your kooky liberal lies! Why are you on a computer the electricity is generated most likely by fossil fuels give up your cars, no that’s right you are a bunch of hypocrites!

  • Punditator

    The supposedly observed change is miniscule over the last 100 odd years? How many measuring stations did they have in 1880? We didn’t even have close to accurate methods to measure global temp until the 80s and it didn’t get good until the period of time that it supposedly went on pause. Then you have to compare that to the other 4 billion years that we have no real information at all about (we know large things, like there is a plant that required x temp, but no real data). Basically, this whole thing is made up with no actual rise in temp over the actual period that we could actually measure and document temps.

    • Sal Minella

      See global average temp series below.

      • Punditator

        I know what they are and how we got them. I also know that they are meaningless in the time period that we are talking about.

        • Sal Minella

          Just agreeing with you. The graph illustrates what the yearly global average temp during the industrial age would look like on an alcohol thermometer. Very difficult to read temp to a hundredth of a degree and amazingly stable over this period.

      Gaaa…are you STILL quoting that? Then you haven’t had the courage to read the statistical methods used and questions asked in the survey. And that’s all it was…a survey. It was not only incredibly slanted in it’s questions (which permitted only a yes or no answer to every question, but only about four percent of those receiving the survey bothered to respond…of the remaining four percent, only about 7% had ANY background in climate science.

    • John Doedeedoe

      Forbes: Global warming alarmists and their allies in the liberal media have been caught doctoring the results of a widely cited paper asserting there is a 97-percent scientific consensus regarding human-caused global warming. After taking a closer look at the paper, investigative journalists report the authors’ claims of a 97-pecent consensus relied on the authors misclassifying the papers of some of the world’s most prominent global warming skeptics. At the same time, the authors deliberately presented a meaningless survey question so they could twist the responses to fit their own preconceived global warming alarmism.
      There ya go buddy. You are believing a LIE.

    A little girl was talking to her teacher about climate change.

    The teacher said this is the first anthropogenic climate change we ever had.

    The little girl stated that the biblical flood was another.

    Irritated, the teacher reiterated that it is the first; at that time it was impossible.

    The little girl said, “When I get to heaven I will ask Noah”.

    The teacher asked, “What if Noah went to hell?”

    The little girl replied, “Then you ask him”.

  • gridlock2

    You can watch Global Warming fraud happening in Real Time, using only an accurate thermometer and your smart phone. The weather app on your smart phone displays the current temperature as measured by a nearby weather station. This is the same temperature data that is used to “confirm” Global Warming. But is this data accurate?

    See for yourself!

    Simply install an accurate thermometer in an appropriate location, out of direct sunlight and away from any obvious sources of heat, like black pavement, a chimney or an air conditioning condensing unit.

    Then open the weather app on your smart phone and compare it to the temperature on your thermometer. Chances are, the temperature on your phone will be 2-3 degrees F higher than the temperature on your thermometer. This will be true, day after day.

    Then, as you go about your daily business, every time you see a thermometer, check the temperature of that location on your smart phone against the thermometer. You will see that the smart phone is again, 2-3 degrees F higher, in location after location.

    The data from the official weather station in most cases is consistently biased high, and it is high by a lot, not by a fractional degree, but by two or three Degrees F. Is it any wonder that every year is the hottest ever measured, when the data is wrong?

    The fraud is happening at the very lowest level. Everybody wants to tell the noble lie to save the planet. They know Global Warming is happening, and they will do whatever it takes to prove it!

  • George Davey

    If we think we have the power to warm the planet, then we should do just that. Anyone who want to push us toward an ice age is high on stupidity. Many of these so called scientists need to fess up on why they want the mass extinction of human life an ice age would bring via starvation. This is the more important point. Why do they want death and depopulation because this is not science it is a philosophy? It is also an illegal philosophy to have. Just like Hitler these warming extremists want lots of people to die and are creating policies to see this through by directly supporting things that would lead to another ice age. A warmer planet means MORE food and continued prosperity for humans around the globe. An ice age means the abolition of Canada and the Northern USA and all the food we currently produce and mass starvation around the world.
    Of course all of this thinking still depends on whether or not we believe humans have the power to change the climate and scientists do not agree humans have this ability.

    What will the global warming pushers say when we have 50 years of harsh winters and snow in June in Kansas?

    The last mimimum happened a few centuries ago, and froze rivers and lakes solid. It is documented in paintings and literature. Snow literally topped houses, and people dug tunnels to get around town.

    That time is coming again… in about 5 years we will get a full dose of it, and it will continue for several decades.

            Oh don’t be such a drama queen. There are no serious voices saying the world is going to end. Simply that a changing climate is going to create all kinds of socioeconomic problems for future generations, and it probably can’t be prevented entirely, the effects can be mitigated if we are bold enough to face the problem and work on real solutions. But I guess it is easier to stick your fingers in your ears and scream lalalalalala, and pretend all is well. Don’t worry. The grown ups are on it. Just get back to whatever it is you were doing.

      That reminds me of the Obama economy when the jobless numbers come out and then are revised up a couple weeks later.

        The problem with those numbers is that they lack perspective. Yes, there have been 10 million jobs “created” in the last 50 years, but tons of them are low wage and we still lose more jobs every month when compared to how many people enter the jobs market. We are probably 20 million below where we were in 2008 even with the supposed gains.

  • Trupatriotz

    What a stupid page. It’s all over the place and the various cited differences in temps shows that the author is grasping.

    Claiming that “0.8 degrees” is negligible is not something a real scientist would say. If the trend is to increase in increments of such, then it’s still disastrous.

    I don’t care about the argument about whether of not humans caused the warming. I really don’t. It could be a natural cycle.

    But the one *fact* that has *never* been challenged is that the planetary ice is melting faster than its re-freezing and that without exception sea level continues to rise – to ignore that one fact and not do anything is madness.

    • AL252

      Pretty much what I just said. I understand and expect there to be a counter argument. Every issue should have a side that is skeptical. However, this website is truly an embarrassment.

    • Punditator

      I don’t think you understand. They are saying that .07 degrees is actually an unmeasurable amount when you consider a global temp and we haven’t even been able to get that until the last couple of decades. When you talk about in all of history I doubt it is accurate within 10 degrees, so there is no way we can accurately compare a .07 degree difference and even if we could we would know what it meant because we have no idea what the average temp of the Earth is.

      • Trupatriotz

        All I can say for sure is that the ice is melting and the sea level continues to rise.
        And most humans live on coastlines.
        As do many nuclear reactors, factories and ports.
        Unless something is done, all of the above will be below water and that will set us back a couple hundred years.

        • Punditator

          The problem with that is that you have no proof that we caused it and you have no proof that we can stop it, or change it, or even if everything you claim is true and you could get your way, that it would actually make a difference. The US has been doing the things you want for decades as has most of Europe. We really can’t change faster than we are.

    There is no money if there is no global warming. Just ask Al Gore. He made a hundred millions dollars scaring the schitt out of people with global warming. That’s all it’s about, people, MONEY.

      So thousands of scientist all over the planet are intentionally misrepresenting numbers and lying about what is truly going on for money? It’s one big conspiracy. They meet in secret and explain to one another how they can conspire to fool the masses. The corporate world and businesses have already decided that they think the concerns are real enough that they have adjusted their business models accordingly. Insurance companies have also. You an be skeptical of the Science if you wish. However, if for profit companies are spending money and adjusting policies because they believe the threat is real, it’s probably something to consider.

      • historyguy48

        Not really. Large companies will not be hurt by this stupidity. It is the smaller companies that will be badly hurt because they don’t have the necessary resources and their failure will allow the larger companies to make larger profits.
        Why else would one purchase the necessary legislation? Or, for that matter, the necessary “scientific” studies?

    • t from NJ

      so this same warming 100 year period may have occurred time and time again through the history of Earth. No data to prove or disprove. If climate is like many intermittent and random failures I ‘ve seen in electronics, climate can follow the same pattern. A PHd, if gets out of idealism, would recognize this happens.

    • funkandgroovyin

      I dunno Einstein, can you explain why they found neanderthal tools and campfires when the glacial ice receded?

      You have any empirical evidence AT ALL to support the “fearies” on “Global Warming”?

    • Alphonse Ragusa

      How exactly has the Earth warned? Is it still warning us? Unless you meant warmed, and the fact is thats debatable – any measurable stat needs a +/- and to say temperatures have gone up less than one degree is insane. Even if it went up several degrees thats still well within the trend of the last 5 warming periods.

  • t from NJ

    These same alarmist at Rutgers were sounding the alarm that we would have floods every year because of heavier rains because of AGW( although we had heavier rains years ago without flooding-muliple circumstances that these ‘climatologists’ don’t take in account on the tributaries) .Back to normal no floods for 3 years.

    The so called climate scientists who are alarmed at what is going on, have NOT studied the Climate HISTORY of this rock we are on. If they did so, they would know that it has been way warmer in the past then now. They would know that the ancient port cities that lie below the ocean depths now, were once on dry land. those cities ended up under water due to global warming, way, way back in time, when there were less than 2 billion people on the planet, with no fossil fuels to blame..

    I’ve written my own climate model and have been testing various scenarios on changing the Earth’s orbit. I’ve come to the conclusion if 90% of the worlds population would congregate in the Sahara desert for 3 consecutive days, the rotation of the Earth would change slightly and move the earth further away from the Sun thus creating a 2 degree decline in global warming. I also show than anything less than 90% will only create more earthquakes. But, as it approaches 93%, we run the risk of tipping Guam. The window of opportunity for this is July 22-25, 2015.

    Time to “correct” the satellite-derived temperatures again.
    In the late 80’s and early 90’s when the satellite-derived temps were cooler than the ground-based sensors atmospheric temperatures the government put great pressure on the satellite community to “correct” their temps–i.e. “correct” the algorithms to make the temps warmer. They did that and the warming crowd put great store in satellite-derived temps because they became warmer than the ground-based measurements. So then they “corrected” the ground-based temperatures to match the warmer satellite-derived temps. So now the ground-based are even warmer than the satellite-derived so they now want to put great store in the ground-based temps.
    Can you say “positive feed-back loop”?

    Ice age predicted in the 70s

    “[M]any scientists now claiming the world is on the brink of a global warming disaster said the same about an impending ice age
    – just 30 years ago. Several major ones, including The New York Times,
    Time magazine and Newsweek, have reported on three or even four
    different climate shifts since 1895.” (Fire and Ice)

    Mainstream Media

    What was the scientific consensus in the 1970s regarding future climate? The most cited example of 1970s cooling predictions is a 1975 Newsweek article “The Cooling World” that suggested cooling “may portend a drastic decline for food production.”

    “Meteorologists disagree about the cause and extent of the cooling trend… But they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century.”

    A 1974 Time magazine article Another Ice Age? painted a similarly bleak picture:

    “When meteorologists take an average of temperatures around the globe, they find that the atmosphere has been growing gradually cooler for the past three decades. The trend
    shows no indication of reversing. Climatological Cassandras are
    becoming increasingly apprehensive, for the weather aberrations they are
    studying may be the harbinger of another ice age.”

  • Minnesotaman68 .

    this articles just proves those who push global warming are wedded to their environmentalist religion and dont care much for science.
